(KMOV) – Police in Jefferson County are looking for the person(s) responsible for burglarizing a catholic shrine.

Authorities say someone broke into the gift shop of the Black Madonna Shrine and Grottos in Pacific.

The Black Madonna refers to an old painting of the Virgin Mary believed to date to the earlier centuries of Christianity.
